If you use the memory card after accidentally formatting it, there is a good chance that new files will overwrite the old files partially or fully. That's probably why you're seeing some photos with parts missing. A professional data recovery service or some paid-for software might be able to do better but it won't be free.
that was my fear

If I put my sd card into my windows pc now, it doesnt recognize those jpg as jpg's. In other words, when I double click them to view them, it gives me an error about "not supporting this file format". If I try to view these files with my Undelete tool, them they are somewhat scrambled as I explained before.
